Support CHE

The Center for Culture, History and Environment draws together faculty, staff, graduate students, and others from a wide array of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences to investigate environmental and cultural change in the full sweep of human history.

Gifts support a wide array of transformative activities, including scholarships, fellowships, internships and travel opportunities; new research initiatives; annual place-based workshops; and public events and programs that enlighten and inspire people from all walks of life.

Gifts in any amount are needed and appreciated!
